Issue No. 22 - How communities of practice support and promote change

March 2023

The Health of Survivors of Family Violence in Family Law Proceedings (referred to as Family Violence
Family Law, FVFL) project aims to (1) create a collaborative space for family law practitioners to
share resources, such as training and guidance on trauma-informed practices, and (2) enhance
collaboration and coordination of legal and extra-legal services that provide support to survivors
of family violence who are engaged in the family law system. As part of this project, the Alliance of
Canadian Research Centres on Gender-Based Violence have established five regional Communities
of Practice (CoPs) nationwide. Practitioners and service providers from diverse backgrounds,
including family violence experts, survivors, family lawyers, researchers, mental health, and social
service professionals, participate in the CoPs.
